Fulton Swim School has been offering swimming lessons in Auckland to Kiwis of all ages since way back in 2005! So, it’s safe to say that we know a thing or two about finding the right swimming classes for you, and your little ones. 

We think that all New Zealanders should have the opportunity to attend swimming lessons, but we know that it’s much easier said than done. If you’re looking for the swim school with the perfect swimming lessons for your family, you’re probably weighing up the pros and cons of each school, and of course, the price.

Swimming Lesson Prices in Auckland: Choosing the best option for your kids! 

The dedicated Fulton Swim School team are passionate about teaching Kiwis the valuable life skill that is water safety. Our goal is to make learning to swim, and gaining confidence around the water, as fun and easy as we can. 

We don’t want finding the right swimming school to feel daunting, so we’ve gone ahead and done the hard work for you! We’ve compared the prices of swimming lessons in Auckland so that you can enjoy more precious time with your family.  

Let’s compare prices:

Most swim schools will offer classes for different age ranges, but not all swim schools are set up for babies, toddlers, or adults. If you’d like to start your baby or toddler in swimming lessons, or you’d like to start swimming lessons yourself, you may find that you’re a little limited in your options.

Don’t worry though! There are still plenty of great swimming schools out there that offer classes to people of ALL ages - have a look for yourself:

*It’s worth noting that these prices are correct at the time of publishing, but may be subject to changes and promotional offers. We’ll do our best to keep this up to date, but feel free to do your own research into the swim schools near you!

Other factors to consider

Finding the right swim school isn’t just about the price though! 

When choosing a swimming school, class sizes matter. For example, at Fulton Swim School, all of our learn to swim classes have an optimum ratio of 4, and a maximum of 5, students to 1 teacher. This is below the industry standard and enables our teachers to focus on their students and ensures the lessons are enjoyable and student progression is fast. Ultimately, you know your child best, if you think they would benefit from smaller class sizes, that might help you narrow down which swimming lessons would suit best.

Along the same lines, if you know that your child learns better in a quieter environment, you might favour a private pool over a public one. Your child may find that taking classes in a public pool is still very distracting, even if their class is small, because there will always be crowds around. Choosing a private swimming school means fewer distractions and more focused learning time! 

The best swimming lessons for your family 

You may weigh up factors like swimming lesson prices, class sizes, and commute times, and still not be sure which option is best for you…

It’s always a good idea to check the reviews of your local swim schools to see what other families think. Here’s what Michelle A had to say about swimming at Fulton Swim School:

“Fabulous swim school with amazing teachers. My children really enjoy their lessons and every single teacher that we have experienced knows their stuff and are great with the children. Would definitely recommend!”

Ultimately, the best swim school for your family is wherever you feel most comfortable. Most swim schools will let you pop in for a walk around, and some might offer trial classes. 

At Fulton Swim School, we encourage you to come visit us! Bring your little one to one of our facilities, have a look around, get to know our lovely, friendly team and ask us any questions you might have - we’d love to meet you!

Why Fulton Swim School

At Fulton Swim School, our facilities are purpose-built to help Kiwis grow their confidence in the water! All of the pools at our facilities are heated to 32 degrees Celsius, and have been designed with children in mind. 

Our classes run throughout the year (including school holidays), because we know that there’s no right or wrong time to start, and attending lessons year-round is the key to continual improvement. This also means that you can book in at any stage of the year and pull out at any stage, so you are not locked in for a term of lessons, and you don’t have to wait until the start of the next term to enrol.

We also have a makeup token system. We’re proud to be one of the few extracurricular activities that offers the chance to make up for a missed lesson. We offer unlimited makeups and there’s no expiry date (subject to our Ts & Cs). That means, if your child is unwell, or you’re heading away on holiday and won't be able to make it to a lesson, that’s no problem! Simply use your makeup token for another lesson you can make it to. Basically, we want you to be able to get the most out of every lesson you pay for! 

You can view your makeup tokens, and track your child’s progress at any time of the day or night, through our handy dandy app. Our amazing app shows student achievements and allows you to manage bookings, so everything you need is at your fingertips! Our teachers also set aside a few minutes at the end of every lesson to discuss your child’s progress in person, and to answer any questions you might have.

Our Fulton Swim School family loves to celebrate success! To celebrate when swimmers achieve goals and reach milestones, we award ribbons, digital certificates, lots of smiles and high fives, and we encourage children to ring the achievement bell so that everyone can applaud their hard work!

We care about what we do, and we care about the students we teach so you can probably imagine how we won the 2023 Swim School of the Year. We offer classes all over the North Island, we have three locations across Auckland (Patumahoe, Puni and Botany) and we’d love to welcome you to the Fulton family!
